United States Completes First Maritime Vessel Upgrade in Dominica
On Monday, February 1, work was completed on the first of Dominica Marine Unit’s two nearshore intercept vessels, as part of a US$800,000 modernization initiative to upgrade the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force’s fleet. The SAFE Boat Mid-Life Upgrade included a complete vessel overhaul, new engines, and a spare parts package to ensure continued operability. Work has already begun to upgrade the Marine Unit’s second vessel, which is expected to be completed by mid-March.
